    • Hello Ted,

      Thank you for your comment. There are two scholarships available. Those people working for organizations within the 7 county area of metro Detroit qualify for the Registration Only Scholarship. This means they do not receive funds for the hotel but their scholarship will cover the registration fee.

      1. Full Conference Scholarship – this scholarship will cover the full conference registration fee as well as a two night stay at the conference hotel on November 4 and 5, 2009. This scholarship is available ONLY for those whose organization’s office is outside the seven county metro Detroit region (Wayne, Oakland, Macomb, Livingston, Monroe, St. Clair, and Washtenaw).

      2. Conference Registration Scholarships – this scholarship will cover the registration fee only and does not include housing. This scholarship is available to those in the seven county metro Detroit region.

      Please let us know if you have any other questions.
